Short-Term Respite

Short-term accommodation, a fun way to meet people and learn new skills.

What can Golden City Support Services do for you?

This is known as Short-Term Accommodation under the NDIS and is often referred to as Respite.

We offer opportunities for people to

  • be involved in their local community and recreation
  • build independence away from their usual accommodation
  • be supported in skill development in daily-living skills
  • enjoy and engage in new experiences
  • to build and maintain friendships
